Academic Flexibility: I enjoy being able to make my own schedule. It helps me to work and go to school.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: GCC is very convenient because it is the closest college to my house. I can commute without a problem, I don't spend too much money on gas each week. The flexibility of scheduling my classes is great because there is a wide variety of times for the classes I take. I prefer the morning, so most of my classes are earlier in the day. I am in the transfer program, so my credits should be able to transfer over to SUNY Buffalo State College without any frustration. I will be sad to transfer to Buff State but very excited because I will be one step closer to becoming a teacher.

Academic Flexibility: The student adviser that I work with knows nothing about the classes that I needed or the correct order to take the classes in for my course of study. Now in order to get my associates degree at GCC, I will have to go to school for a total of 4 years instead of 2. I was also encouraged by this adviser to go to a different college. To me this is unacceptable and if she doesn't know how to do her job, maybe they should hire a college graduate that knows and I am sure if they do not know, they could ask someone instead of pretending to know what they are doing. I am not the only one who has complained about her for other courses, doing the same thing, scheduling wrong order of course or wrong courses all together. This has put a bad taste in my mouth when people ask me about my experience, I tell them. The only reason I continue to go here is the convenience of the campus being close to home.
